Château Peyruchet Bordeaux Contrôlée 2009

Member Review by jtryka:

Tonight's wine is a nice wine drinking so-so right now, but destined to improve over time. The 2009 Chateau Peyruchet Bordeaux is a very nice classic blend from the Gironde containing 70% merlot, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 15% cabernet franc, certainly a familiar combination to any fans of the bordeaux blends produced in the Pacific Northwest. On the nose it exhibits hints of leather and spice, and you just get the overwhelming impression that this wine wants to be truly great when it grows up! The taste is already quite dry, but the youthful tannins give it a bite, sort of like a really annoying small dog. But throughout the tasting experience, you just long to forgive the youthful indiscretions of this wine and come back for more when it's had time to mature. Even so, tonight this wine was ultimately saved by pairing it with the surf and turf I had for dinner, as even the worst wine tastes acceptable with a lobster tail and a NY strip grilled to perfection and paired with some fresh grilled corn on the cob! For the time being, I would give this one a 3.5, knowing that in a year or two it could easily be a point or two higher. And for the price now (I bought this one on sale for $12), it might be worth cellaring a bottle or two to see what happens next.

Nice and crisp, with a lemony zest that feels just right for the porch, deck, or boat.
